LETTER FROM A PRAIRIE CHICKEN

Irene Ahner '65 C came into possession of the 1944, '45, and '46 Greystone year books. With the help of other sources she found the history of women in the College and School of Agriculture.  Women such as Alice Munro '44C who was secretary of the ASA in 1943-44 and "a staunch crusader for the emancipation of women within the college". Roberta Phillips '44 S from Herschel, SK, who was the School of Agriculture Sheaf rep, Kathleen Hodson '44 S, from Rosthern who was the School of Agriculture Executive Secretary, and Ann Caton '47 C who was the ASA Dramatics Rep.
Read about these, and other interesting women, in Irene's Letter From a Prairie Chicken.
